Short summary
The K index, characterizing local geomagnetic activity, is generally automatically calculated by algorithms such as KASM, one of the four software programs recommended by INTERMAGNET. KASM requires an appropriate L9 value. We analyze K values for Italian observatories and compare them with historical German observatories to establish the best L9 estimation for our stations. A comparison with results from a previous empirical method shows the consistency and reliability of our outcome.
